''Witch Craft Works'' is a seinen manga about Takamiya Honoka, an ordinary student who sits next to Kagari Ayaka, the most popular girl in school. Their interactions are limited because her fan club assaults him for simply speaking to her. But when the school's clock tower falls towards Takamiya, Kagari rescues him while flying on a broom. She proceeds to incinerate some strange rabbit monsters and reveals that she is a witch, he is her ''princess'' and her mission is to protect him.

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Kagari's mother, Kazane, looks more like her sister than her mom.
** At least Kazane behaves like an adult mature woman, meanwhile Komachi, the mother of the Takamiyas, is a self proclaimed crybaby who looks just a bit older than her children.

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Kasumi asks Takamiya a few in episode 4, largely wondering why he got a phone call from a girl on a Sunday, then rushed out to meet her.

* GoodIsNotNice: Many of the Craft Witches, while utterly dedicated to protecting their cty and the people in it, can be just ruthless and cruel as their opponents, the Tower Witches, when fighting. More specifically, Kasumi outright states that she doesn't really care what side she's on; her only concern is protecting Takamiya.

** In general, the most powerful witches aren't quite human.

*CastOfSnowflakes: Each character has a unique design and outfit. No one witch looks the same.

* OneHeadTaller: Kagari is at least one head taller than anyone in the school, including Takamiya(as best seen in chapter 12). It's not quite as extreme in the anime, but she's still significantly taller and more imposing than her "princess."

** The anime also loves showing detailed background of the city. The flying scene in episode 3 are prominent example.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Kagari, being elected the princess, which is second in power at the school (only the administrator ranks higher, which also happens to be her mother), uses this power to fire the student council president. She then names Takamiya as the successor. She decided to do this to curb the GreenEyedMonster jealousy going on around the school due to them being close.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: The Takamiyas' mom, Komachi, flat out tells her children that she had this relationship with Kazane, Kagari's mother, and that they would have gotten married if they could have. So instead they decided to have their children marry as their way to become a family.

* NoEnding: The anime only lasted [[TwelveEpisodeAnime 12 episodes]] (13 if you count the [=OVA=]) and thus ended with many subplots unresolved, such as the Tower Witches still at large, Chronoire's interest in Evermillion unresolved and the shared past between Honoka and Ayaka still a mystery. The only sense of finality is that Honoka accepts magic as part of his everyday life.

* HugeSchoolgirl: Ayaka Kagari. At 197 cm (or around 6 feet 4 inches), she towers over ''everyone''. This was actually ''toned down'' in the anime adaptation, where she's "merely" half a head higher than Takamiya, rather than him barely reaching her shoulders.
